Tony’s Finer Foods confirmed rumors it was taking over the former Dominick’s store at 5233 N. Lincoln Ave.

The Lincoln Square store, called Tony’s Fresh Market, will be the company’s 12th location when it opens this spring.

“We are still looking to expand,” says Tony’s co-owner Maria Ingraffia. “We are looking at up to five new locations in Chicago.”

Last month, Ald. Pat O’Connor’s (40th) office confirmed to that he was meeting with Tony’s representatives. At the time, none of the parties would confirm an agreement.

On Monday, Tony’s announced the new store on its Facebook page.

Dominick’s parent company announced in October that it would close all 72 stores by Dec. 28.
